On the plus side, Earth types of personality are practical and down to Earth type people. They have strength, are able to endure and are patient. They also tend to value structure, boundaries, loyalty and permanence. Those with Earth personality characteristics are great manifesters and anchors of the world who are often very serene people. But these types of personalities can also easily get stuck in ruts as the tendency towards permanence and stability can make them stubborn and inflexible. If you are an Earth element personality type facing this type of challenge, here are a couple of tips that can help.
- The flower essence Walnut is great if you want to make a big voluntary change in your life. It can help you develop an overall sense of well-being and be able to face new conditions. Walnut helps with stabilizing, establishing good boundaries, transition, and protection and is excellent for all kinds of life transitions, clearing out old habit patterns, and helping you find your direction free from the influence of others.
- Walking in the rain by running water is another way to help get you out of a rut. Water was often used as a cleansing source in tribal times to release the old and bring in the new. Old ideas and beliefs were carried away by the running water and fresh new ideas were brought in from above through the rain. You can do this exact same thing out in nature or you can turn to your shower for fresh water from above and running water below. Either of these ways can help with letting go of preconceived notions, judgments, and old beliefs that no longer serve so you are able to accept new ideas and beliefs.
- You can also wash away your stuck energy and shift yourself out of your rut by using the shower litany.
Whichever of these techniques work for you to break up stubbornness and clear out the old that no longer serves, learning more about your predominant element that has such an effect on your personality will also be helpful.
